Polsinelli welcomes attorney Jessica Epperson as counsel to the firm’s national Corporate and Transactional Practice. With proven experience in assisting clients achieve their business goals in a practical and value-added manner, Epperson will focus on helping clients navigate the complex legal and regulatory landscape at all stages of the business cycle.
“Jessica adds substantial depth of knowledge in several of our key industries, but equally as important, she is an excellent strategic thinker with the goals and objectives of her clients always top-of-mind,” said Corporate and Transactional Practice Group Chair and Dallas Office Managing Partner Jon Henderson. “Our national practice looks forward to the synergies she brings, and we are particularly excited to have her residing in Dallas.”
Epperson provides business legal services to clients of all sizes and complexities, counseling clients in a broad range of industries, including education, health care, technology, manufacturing, banking and financial services. She has extensive experience over a broad range of corporate transactions, including entity formation and planning, corporate governance and other matters of general business law, joint ventures mergers, divestures and asset and stock acquisitions, as well as securities offerings and complex financings.
“I was attracted to Polsinelli for many reasons including the opportunity to work again with Jon Henderson and Bill Swart, with whom I previously practiced in Dallas,” Epperson said. “But I particularly welcomed the opportunity to be a part of a growing coast-to-coast firm that is expanding in the Dallas area and that is known for its talented, top-of-class legal team and its commitment to client service.”
The American Lawyer Magazine recognizes Polsinelli as the fastest growing U.S. law firm for the past six years.
